(New York, NY) -- Major League Baseball and the players association are still working to end the league's current lockout. ESPN reports the sides weren't able to reach a deal on a new collective bargaining agreement on Tuesday. Though there were some positive gains as the MLB reportedly agreed to accept parameters of a pre-arbitration bonus pool. The sides do remain apart on a starting minimum salary for first-year players, revenue sharing and a competitive balance tax. It's reported that a deal would need to be reached by February 1st to avoid delaying the start of spring training camps.
